Jake Adelstein latest to succumb to narcotics

Jake’s contribution to the debate starts with a Betteridge headline, and follows with his usual load of conspiracy theories and unnamed sources, and the occasional contradiction, such as:

She hasn’t been able to speak with the company directly because she has been in detention since her arrest.

And:

Suspects are allowed one 20-minute visit per day, excluding their lawyer. 

These two statements are contradictory; Toyota may have decided not to send someone round to visit her, of course, but she is able to speak to the company while in detention.

Does anyone really believe that a high-paid executive of Toyota was smuggling oxycodone into Japan in an attempt to get high

Well, I could believe that, from what I know of oxy and that it seems to get handed out like sweeties in the USA.

The comments are quite, quite full of crazy, and I note that Mr Adelstein has taken to voting up some of the even more ridiculous conspiracy theories there.
